In order to train the engineers and managers of tomorrow, ESSEC Business School and CentraleSupélec initiated a joint double degree in 2009. They subsequently strengthened this partnership with the establishment of a bilateral strategic alliance. With this alliance, the two schools are developing common curricula, sharing their international networks and pooling together their resource centers. Their ambition is to offer an ever-more comprehensive and innovative range of courses, thereby consolidating their position on the international scene.


Taking your idea from ideation to completion: that is the challenge that the academic partners have issued to candidates. Through this joint program, the two schools offer an immersion into their entrepreneurial ecosystems thanks to a gradual syllabus and access to their alumni networks. This course will provide you with a 360° overview of the major management disciplines and will act as an accelerator.


More broadly, as part of this program, ESSEC and CentraleSupélec work hand in hand to offer unique opportunities for discussion and networking. The goal is to build bridges between these two schools, which have both made entrepreneurship a strategic pillar of their academic offering.
